|Steve Irwin, shown here in 2002, was renowned for his enthusiasm.|
While Colorado looked like a surefire bet for the coveted No. 5 spot after its loss to Montana State, the Buffs deserved less. So pencil in CU at No. 2. The Bottom 10 is calling the Hogs into the No. 5 spot instead. Sure, USC is good, but the Razorbacks were sliced up 50-14 at home by the Trojans.
Buffalo, New Mexico State and Louisiana-Monroe all won to earn their Bottom 10 exit. Rice and Idaho lost, but played their way out of the this week's ranking.
Pillow fight of the week: Kent State at Army.
So, with apologies to Steve Harvey and remembering Steve Irwin, here's this week's Bottom 10:
|ESPN.com's Bottom 10|
|1.||Duke||0-1||"Crikey!": Losing to Div. I-AA Richmond is bad enough, but the Blue Devils were also shut out. The Croc Hunter's cry is worth repeating: Crikey!|
|2.||Colorado||0-1||"Let's follow 'im": CU brought in Dan Hawkins to lead the program. After the loss to I-AA Montana State in his opener, will the Buffs follow 'im again?|
|3.||New Mexico||0-1||"Whack": The Lobos invited I-AA Portland State down to Albuquerque to be the main course, but they got Whacked instead.|
|4.||Temple||0-1||"Have a look at this beauty": On a normal week, the Owls would be a lock at No. 1. Their 9-3 loss to Buffalo in OT was a Bottom 10 Instant Classic.|
||0-1||"Whoooo!": Irwin didn't add the "Pig Sooie" to the end of his trademark scream. He definitely wouldn't have if he had been in Razorback Stadium Saturday, either.|
|6.||Kent State||0-1||"Danger! Danger! Danger!": It can be screamed by the Golden Flashes' offense or defense. Kent State scored 0 and gave up 44 to Minnesota.|
|7.||F_U||0-2||"Crocs Rule!": Irwin loved crocs. Gators and crocs are related. Florida is gator country. The Bottom 10 loves Florida Atlantic and Florida International. F_U Rules!|
|8.||North Texas||0-1||"Have a go at this": After the opening weekend, the Mean Green are ranked last in total offense and last in scoring defense.|
|9.||Utah State||0-1||"Down Under": Irwin's native Australia is referred to as Down Under. The Aggies live in a land down under most I-A teams.|
|10.||Syracuse||0-1||"Dr. Doolittle II": Irwin played a role in the movie. Greg Robinson hasn't done much to help the Orange.|
Waiting list: Army (0-1), Eastern Michigan (0-1), Florida State's running game, Idaho (0-1), Kentucky (0-1), Louisiana-Lafayette (0-1), Miami's running game, Mississippi State's offense, premature touchdown celebrations, Rice (0-1) and Stanford (0-1).
